  • Descrição: Several more pieces of textual evidence help support and elaborate this interpretation of Beauvoir's and Sartre's "interdependence." Most obvious are the interviews that she appends to La Cérémonie, clearly intended to contrast with Victor's.7 Beauvoir claims that Sartre speaks more or less unmediated in this dialogue transcribed from the late summer of 1974: "je n'ai pas tenté [d'écrire les conversations] au sens littéraire du mot . . . elles permettent de suivre les méandres de sa pensée et d'entendre sa voix vivante" (163). The interviews, one is to understand, capture the living Sartre in the very act of thinking. The dates of the conversation also prove to be significant: the first serious warnings of Sartre's mental failing came on only a few months prior to these interviews. Beauvoir thus offers Sartre's thought before the onset of regular attacks of gâtisme and well before any détournement de vieillard by a self-interested outsider.
